Resident Care Coordinator

“I love working in senior healthcare because I like to care for people and enjoy creating pleasant and fulfilling days for all the residents. Days are challenging and rewarding all at once and the responsibilities keep me on my toes – it is never a boring day! I originally came to Sunrise because my mom worked for the company and felt it would be a great fit, but I stayed because it has given me the opportunity to grow. Sunrise gave me the path to improve myself as a person and as a professional through fulfilling work.”

“I started as a server in the dining room and have transitioned into several roles at Sunrise, but when this activity position opened up I felt it was made for me! I wanted to see the residents come to life! I am able to use my education, love of art and natural talents to enhance the quality of life of our residents. I spent a lot of time in other nursing homes when my dad and grandmother were sick and it was so depressing. I was so impressed by the level and quality of care that Sunrise provided in such a beautiful, cozy atmosphere!”

“Nursing allows me to assess the needs of our residents and find solutions to get them on the road to recovery and feeling their best! I worked in hospitals for over 20 years and became familiar with senior living communities. I love the Sunrise mission to “Champion the Quality of Life for All Seniors” and feel strongly about that statement! Here the residents have come to trust me and I enjoy being with them, and love them all!”

“I love to cook and I get to add my personal touch to dishes. Most importantly I am happy that the residents, families and team members enjoy what I prepare for them. My daughter worked for Sunrise and I knew it would be a great team to join. I love what I do and being a part of Sunrise!”
